Culture & Narrative Fellowship

The Culture & Narrative Fellowship was founded on the belief that artists and cultural strategists can play an active role in narrative and culture change. This year’s Fellows will have an opportunity to explore and challenge white supremacist narratives alongside advocates and thought leaders using the latest in narrative research and communication tools. Fellows will also receive a $15,000 award and strategic support for their proposed art or cultural intervention during the six-month fellowship period.
